Get Capitol Insider App for Latest Insights on Lobbying, Current Events

With just a few weeks remaining in the current session of the California Legislature, one way for readers to stay up-to-date on legislative activities is the Capitol Insider blog presented by the California Chamber of Commerce.

CalChamber launched the blog this year to provide insights from CalChamber policy advocates and experts on issues under consideration in Sacramento.

Now, interested readers can gain easier access to the Capitol Insider blog via an app available to download from the iTunes and Google Play stores.

Blog posts provide examples of the wide range of subjects the CalChamber covers for members, including: the broad and potentially devastating impact of a court decision changing how to determine whether a worker is an independent contractor; remediation for lead paint used in homes; what makes a bill a job killer; the survival of some job creators; environmental groups’ shifting position on styrofoam containers; trial attorneys and data breach legislation; education reform; sexual harassment prevention legislation; a day in a policy advocate’s life; how the California Water Commission reacted to pressure via letters and media; the Legislature sticking to market mechanisms (cap-and-trade) to attain the state’s ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and rulemaking by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA).
